Now, Easter maybe over but it is never too early to get a head start on ideas for next year. Or for a simple fun activity. So here's the deal. Decorating eggs can be fun. But when we use dye, it may not be the most safe choice and these pretty little eggs tend to go to waste. What if there was a way to make them pretty and edible? Ya' know, living the best of both worlds. Fear not, everything I write about I have tried at least once.
Eggs (hard boiled)
Step one is to hard boil those eggs. Let 'em get nice and hard and then it'll be time to get to work.
Next, its time to get bowls/pans and pour some whipped cream on there. Don't be shy, put a healthy amount. It depends on how many kids are doing this activity so use your best judgement. Worse case, colorful whipped cream can be saved for a bice topping for dessert!
Then add couple of drops of food coloring. Stir it up until whipped cream is no longer white. Personally, I put bowls with different colors separate and then let the kiddos dip eggs in each bowl and create a rainbow effect for themselves.
Last step, release the kraken! Just kidding. Let your kids dip the eggs and color them. Once the eggs are done, place them on saran wrap, a pan, or even a paper towel and op those babes on the fridge to let the colors really sink it.
* for best results, rinse eggs in cool water*
5. Now pose with those eggs and make a great photo op. Then, here comes her best part, EAT IT!
* If you are so inclined, you may make homemade whipped cream and then follow the same steps from above. But either way, have a d delicious blast!!
